SONREEL (Natural Resources, Energy & Environmental Law)

Section on Natural Resources, Energy and Environmental Law (SONREEL) serves as a primary forum for keeping its members informed in regard to developments in Natural Resources (mining, timber and marine resources); Energy (oil and gas and electric power); and Environmental (air and water quality, hazardous and solid waste, environmental crimes and environmental litigation) areas of the law. This Section produces CLE seminars and in conjunction with students from the University of Mississippi Law School, publishes a newsletter to assist members in keeping abreast of developments and changes in these areas of law.
